HELLLLLLOOOOOO 1993 with a vengeance! Don’t know what I’m talking about? Do you live under a rock? I know I don’t pay attention to the news, and the only reason I actually know about this is because of a joke that was made when I walked in from work yesterday. In fact, because of this late breaking news, I am unable to write about what I wanted to last week (good thing, because I forget what I said I would write about on-air!) or about how awesome I am because yesterday was good ol’ Steel Tip’s birthday (maybe we’ll do that next week as a belated birthday present)!
Back to 1993, not quite the first, and definitely not the last, ‘What the Fuck?!?!?!’ moment happened right here in America. During the night of June 23, 1993, John Wayne Bobbitt arrived at his apartment, that was shared with his then wife Lorena Bobbitt, in Manassas, Virginia, highly intoxicated after a night of partying. According to testimony given by Lorena in a 1994 court hearing, he then raped her. Afterwards, she got out of bed and went to the kitchen for a drink of water. According to an article in the National Women’s Studies Association Journal, while in the kitchen Lorena noticed a carving knife on the counter and “memories of past domestic abuses raced through her head.” Grabbing the knife, she entered the bedroom where John was sleeping and proceeded to cut off almost half of his penis.
About 1/10th of the scream he actually had
After assaulting her husband, Lorena left the apartment with the severed penis, drove a short while, then rolled down the car window and threw the penis into a field… yep; tossed it like it was an unwanted hot dog. The fact that it was recovered and reattached is amazing.
I tell you all of this because 8 years and 20 days later, something even more fucked up happened. And, regardless if you live under a rock or not, prepare yourself; as it makes me cringe every time I think about it. I’ve buried the lead long enough… this is the headline that most reporters have used (which does not bury the lead at all): Man’s penis cut off, put through garbage disposal.
Since I won’t be in the studio this week and won’t be able to go over this article on-air like I would want to; I’m going to pick it about here and comment on it. Full the full read, without my interruption, click here.
The opening line to the article blows my mind as they continue to NOT bury the lead: Prosecutors say an argument over houseguests led a Southern California woman to cut off her estranged husband’s penis and put it down a garbage disposal.
OVER HOUSEGUESTS!?!? What the fuck happens when they argue about something serious? Like bills??? And what was going through Catherine Kieu’s head? Hmm… well just cutting it off has been done; it’s cliché. Let’s shove it down a garbage disposal as well and make sure it’s never usable again!
On Monday night, police say Kieu spiked a meal and served it to the victim.
SHE DRUGGED HIM! It’s not like she just went crazy and took a knife to him and whatnot. NO… she knew what she was going to do. She drugged him and waited. Want more proof that she knew she was going to cut off his most precious body part?
The 60-year-old man started to feel sick and went to lie down, then awoke tied to the bed as Kieu attacked him with a 10-inch kitchen knife, police said.
SHE TIED HIM TO BED!!! WHY!?!?! WHY IS SHE SO EVIL!?!?!?
She then put the penis down a garbage disposal, police said.
Police did not release the victim’s name. He underwent surgery and was listed in good condition at University of California at Irvine Medical Center, hospital spokesman John Murray said.
In good condition… IN GOOD CONDITION!?!?!? False. No one can be in good condition when their junk was down a garbage disposal!
The only true justice that can be served is to chop off her boobs, throw them in a blender, and make here drink them!
Excuse me while I go vomit and crawl into the fetal position for the next week.
